The aim of the paper is to explore why and how logistics service providers (LSPs) could take a more active role in the financial supply chain. To achieve the aim, we embark on a single case study with one of the largest LSPs in world. The case firm is rather reluctant to engage in the financial supply chain, which is motived by the risk averse nature of the firm, the non-core nature of finance to the LSP and the immature nature of existing solutions.
